What is XEOMIN and how is it pronounced?

XEOMIN (Zeo-min) is a botulinum toxin type A that was approved on July 20, 2011 by the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
•The FDA approval of XEOMIN is based on the results of two pivotal U.S. clinical trials, which involved 16 investigational sites and included 547
healthy adult patients. In both studies, XEOMIN significantly improved the appearance of glabellar lines 30 days after the first injection, when
compared to placebo.

How does XEOMIN work to treat my facial muscles?

•XEOMIN works by blocking the transmission of signals from nerves to the muscles, by hindering the release of the neurotransmitter (the chemical
which relays the signals). This prevents the muscles from contracting, giving frown lines a smoother appearance for a temporary period of time.
•The first onset of XEOMIN effect can occur in as early as three days and within seven days after injection. A head-to-head multi-center trial
showed that XEOMIN and BOTOX® Cosmetic demonstrate comparable efficacy for up to four months in most patients.

Is XEOMIN proven in clinical trials?

•XEOMIN has been proven safe and effective through the two clinical trials referenced above, with 12+ years of real-world experience and
featured in over 360 relevant medical publications.
•Proven patient satisfaction as demonstrated from a survey conducted with 10,000 patients three months following treatment, where more than
90% of those who responded said they would use Xeomin again.

consistent results, treatment after treatment
•Using precision manufacturing technology, the smart formula removes all unnecessary proteins, leaving only what is needed for treatment,
nothing more.
